Abstract (en)

An Oldham coupling links two sections of a drive shaft with a connecting disc for the shafts and an intermediate disc (3) with a radial keyway join (4,5). The pin (5) is free to move back and forth in the passage (4). The two keyway joins are positioned at 90[deg]C. to each other. One passage is of partial cylindrical form.

Abstract (de)

Eine Wellenkupplung zur zur drehstarren Verbindung zweier rotierender Wellen, mit je einer Anschlussscheibe (1, 2; 2'; 1", 2") für die Wellen und einer zwischen den Anschlussscheiben (1, 2; 2'; 1", 2") angeordneten Zwischenscheibe (3), die an beide Anschlussscheiben (1, 2; 2'; 1", 2") über je eine radiale Nut-Steg-Verbindung (4, 5) angeschlossen ist, wobei die beiden Nut-Steg-Verbindungen (4, 5) um 90° zueinander gedreht angeordnet sind und der jeweilige Steg (5) zylindrisch ausgebildet und an einer der Scheiben (3) mittels Befestigungsmitteln (6) durch Druck in Axialrichtung befestigt ist und in der zugehörigen Nut (4) in Längsrichtung der Nut (4) hin und her bewegbar und in der Nut (4) um seine Längsachse um einen Winkelbereich drehbar gleitend gelagert ist, lässt sich trotz ihrer Eignung zur Übertragung großer Drehmomente einfach dadurch herstellen, dass der Steg (5) in eine axiale Ausnehmung (7a) der ihn tragenden Scheibe (3) hineinragt und über seine Länge an Kanten (7b) der Ausnehmung zur formschlüssigen Übertragung eines Drehmoments anliegt. <IMAGE>
